eResources A-Z

Within the Library, all members have access to our wide range of eresources specialising in the arts, humanities and social sciences. Access to these resources is also available for many members outside of the physical Library.

If you have a problem connecting to a database, please send an email. We will do our best to rectify the issue as quickly as possible.

Read the latest news updates about our eresources.

General electronic resources for finding full-text articles and article citations include ProQuest, and EBSCOhost. Back runs of journals can be searched on JSTOR or the Periodicals Archive Online. For subject specific electronic resources check the relevant research collection. For more information see our Print and Electronic Journals page.
